    Your post started with one of my all time favourite quotes from Helen Keller. It was the post-script on my emails for many years. It was what drove me to jump out of perfectly good airplanes – 150 times. And then on to pilot and then to scuba diving. Life has taught me that you may not have the time you think you do. So the Buddha quote resonates. Not “carpe diem” at all costs. But a desire to not put off those things that are important. Some great quotes here put to great photos.

    • liapontarelli

      Wow! Jumping out of airplanes is something that I’m pretty sure I couldn’t do, so that’s awesome that you’ve done it 150 times! Way to go!

  • Kaitlin Terese

    I think the quote, “If you never go then you will never go.” Not only does this apply to traveling but this applies to so many areas in life. From careers, relationships, challenges and travel. It is all relevant. The quotes shared on this page give me that little travel itch!

  • Jay Artale

    Thanks for this collection, some I’ve never encountered before. Throughout time there has been a big focus on seeing the world, and some of these quotes go back so far into the past … just think how travel has changed over all these years.

  • Cecilia

    How I do love a good inspirational quote…especially when it inspires adventure! One of my favorites that you mentioned is ““Travel is the only thing you an buy that makes you richer.” We like to collect memories not things. At the end of the day all that “stuff” won’t matter. It is the stories and legacy you leave behind.

  • Nish

    Reading all these quotes is really making my feet itch! I so badly want to be able to step out of my home during this intense lockdown we have in my area. I think I’d be happy just being able to go to the mall right now!

  • Umiko

    I like the one by Sandra Lake. “With age, comes wisdom. With travel, comes understanding.” It’s not just understanding others culture or habits, but it also give you an understanding of yourself deeper and your husband, wife, kids, or partner that travels with you. We realize that everyone reacts or learn something differently.

  • Manjulika Pramod

    It was so good to read about inspiring quotes. It reminds of good old days of travel. Hopefully everything will resume soon.

    “If you never go, you will never know.” Anonymous

    This one is my favorite always because there is always a doubt before starting but trust me until one goes and explores, one never gets to know what they are missing out on.

  • Yukti Agrawal

    I love quotes and especially if they are related to travel. Loved all your quotes especially the one Wander where WiFi is weak, as nowadays WiFi though helpful but has taken our lots of time. Also it is true Travel brings power and love both back into our life. I really got revived by reading up so many motivational travel quotes.

  • Clarice

    These are truly beautiful quotes. The one from Anita Desai is actually one of my favorites – “Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”

    Aside from the beautiful travel memories, our experiences also changes us which shape who we are.

    • liapontarelli

      I couldn’t agree more! Some of those experiences I’ve had while traveling have changed me forever!
